Course Outline

Module 5

This modules starts off with reinforcing some of the basics presented in Modules 1-4. The features of the GSV and SSV instructions are presented to get and set system values. The next lesson goes over the status flags used to monitor certain events in the logic and then instructions used to manipulate and move data. After this, indirect addressing is discussed as a powerful method of accessing tags. To conclude the module, the student will gain an introduction to instructions that work on a file level, otherwise known as arrays.

Lessons

  1. Introduction to the Demo
  2. Arrays
  3. User Defined Type
  4. GSV / SSV Instructions
  5. Status Flags
  6. Move Instructions
  7. Indirect Addressing
  8. File Instructions

Module 6

The module begins by covering special instructions that are commonly used to monitor and compare machine state with a reference bit pattern and then continues with miscellaneous instructions for statistical control. The instructor will then cover bit shift instructions that can be used to track parts flow in an assembly line production. The last lesson covers ways to handle data in stacks with the stack register instructions.

Lessons

  1. Special Instructions
  2. Misc Instructions
  3. Bit Shift Instructions
  4. Stack Register Instructions

Module 7

This module begins with instructions that can be used to control repetitive machine operations. Next, the student is introduced to the concept of add-on Instructions by using and troubleshooting existing instructions followed by a powerful method for creating your own instructions. The next lesson covers some of the new advanced features in the message instruction. To conclude the module inter-processor communications using EtherNet as the medium is covered. In the case of produced/consumed tags, no message instruction is used.

Lessons

  1. Sequencer Instructions
  2. Using Add-On Instructions
  3. Creating Add-On Instructions
  4. The Message Instruction
  5. Produced and Consumed Tags

Module 8

This module begins by exploring some more aspects of tasks. Next, the ASCII string instructions used to develop text messages for display and communication are covered. The power-up handler and fault routines will be discussed and the last lesson covers the concepts of closed loop control with the PID instruction.

Lessons

  1. Event Tasks
  2. ASCII String Instructions
  3. Fault and Power Up Handling
  4. The PID Instruction
